Every person has a story of a journey that they have been on. These stories are generally filled with triumph, perseverance, success and challenge. In understanding the nature of this course, it is important to understand that these stories, when woven together, make up the fabric of this nation. To better understand this, it is important to know that this course will focus on the journey of many different groups of people to America and other North American locations from a variety of places. It is my hope that you will understand and be respectful of the journeys shared both in text and in class share-outs. In order to grow in our understanding of those around us, we must silence our judgments and open our hearts to the many stories that continue to make us who we are.
This assignment is designed to get students talking about a journey of their choice, providing guiding questions, a rubric and reflection sheet all while designed to be shared in class, as part of truly any class.
